doesn't give a darn about anything. to teach creation or why you should care about humans. this is why you should care only on the. u.s. intelligence say there's no direct link between russia and the downing of the malaysian airliner over ukraine they insist it was shot down by anti kiev fighters but has so far failed to hand over any hard evidence. i made seventeen's flight data recorders head to the u.k. to be d. code it is investigators begin identifying passengers bodies saying they're satisfied with the probes progress so far. and the u.s. and european media keep pressing the blame for the crash on russia brushing off all evidence the conferee is propaganda claiming they voiced the whole world's outrage and its claims and counterclaims continue over the burning tragedy the e.u. draws up further sanctions against russia over the crisis in ukraine.
2:01 am
are you with r.t. international now there's nothing directly tying russia to the downing of flight m h seventeen u.s. intelligence officials have announced during a press briefing they believe it was the work of antigovernment forces but the officials say they aren't even sure of the nationality let alone who did it. sums up the briefing. u.s. intelligence officials speaking on conditions of anonymity really under thinking veil of secrecy are coming out and saying that they have absolutely no evidence and no proof showing any kind of involvement on behalf of the russian government when it comes to this tragedy certainly this is something that's a very big development in this story because this does not really fit the narrative
2:02 am
that the u.s. has been pushing in this whole ordeal as of course meanwhile certainly the investigation is really just beginning to take off importantly we've heard from one u.s. intelligence officials say we don't know we name we don't know rank and we're not even one hundred percent sure of a nationality this keeping this in mind they are continuing to say that it's likely this was a mistake shoot down conducted by the appetite of fighters on the ground in eastern ukraine but it looks like because of so much secrecy and these reports really are you had to interpret it differently certainly in u.s. media we seeing journalists going so far as to say that they have don't even have any certainty at all in terms of this being specifically the anti kiev fighters we know that these u.s. intelligence officials are saying that they are basing these claims on social media and posts made by the ukrainian government and that's certainly not
2:03 am
a first when it comes to the ukrainian crisis on monday russia's defense ministry has said also that they have proof that there was another clean in the air next to the malaysian airlines flight before it was shot down they believe this plane resembled a ukrainian military jets and they have been demanding comments or an explanation from kiev and kiev of course thus far has denied this we also do know that russia's defense ministry has also said that they have images of ukrainian missile systems within the zone of the crash. american maintains that russia is training and arming the n.t. government forces in the east ukraine something more scary strongly denies washington and that opinion is partly based on social media posts the fact that investigative journalist spends finds worried. we now see the ministration stepping back walking back some of these comments about the involvement of russia the administration
2:04 am
saying we don't even know that the training happened in russia but again we're pretty sure we're not going to tell you who these sources are again they're all speaking anonymously but we're pretty sure this is all happening in russia again but not offering any evidence here's what we're going to see happen is the administration kind of gives this kind of soft explanation that they don't have evidence but with the nudge in the wink that says but we really know media picks up on that they'll begin to report a little bit and then within a few weeks we'll probably see that this becomes a non-story in many ways because it now no longer fits the narrative that the administration was hoping for and that media was hoping for and they'll move on to the next story the netherlands which is leading the investigation into what happened to flight m.h. seventeen has asked britain to do it two black box flight recorders recovered at the crash site in khost that has more on the investigation from the didn't yet screeching. now most of the bodies of the victims of flight sim a seventeen have now arrived in the city all part of call for the netherlands
2:05 am
a forensics team are now working on the scene there and interpol are there as well as trying to identify the bodies now we're waiting for the bodies to arrive in the lead netherlands perhaps on wednesday according to the dutch prime minister meanwhile the always see who are working here on the scene as a monitoring mission said i'm like a in the first day they have now been granted full access to the sites and they're also saying that malaysian experts who arrived here are also feeling completely unrestricted the malaysians have expressed gratitude for the access they received today they were quite happy with it. in fact they said they felt quite protected. they have also said they have not seen any evidence of parts at least major parts missing from any of the crash sites here today the spokesperson for the always see mission also added that perhaps it is now time for those with more experience to finally get here to jeanette's can start
2:06 am
investigating and he also mentioned that they're yet to hear from the international aviation commission meanwhile the black boxes that were recovered on the scene that were initially given by the self-proclaimed defense forces to the malaysian authorities were later delivered to the british aviation authorities who will now be conducting an investigation along with the netherlands so that the bodies of the victims are to be transported to the netherlands and peter all of the is there for a lot. it's here at eindhoven airport that the first bodies of those killed on board malaysian airlines flight seventeen will be brought on board a dutch military airplane just behind me you can actually see an australian military transport that will be heading in the opposite direction as part of what's being called a an air bridge that will make sure that all of the bodies come out of ukraine and enough equipment goes into the country so that a correct investigation can take place now once those bodies arrive here at
2:07 am
eindhoven airport they're going to be taken by refrigerated trucks to the town of his decision to be more correct to a military base just outside of the town of hilton now that that military base is the headquarters the main training center for medics in the army now this was something that was promised by marketer to the dutch prime minister on monday during a press briefing he said it was the number one priority to get the bodies out of ukraine and begin that identification process and it seems that that's now well underway and they'll be bringing some kind of rest by to those families who lost their loved ones on board this tragic tragic flight. well the investigation into the mh seventeen downing is still in its early stages but some of us in the news have already pin the blame they keep accusing russia of both the crash and the cover up sometimes mistaking the wall of this speculation for moscow's official take. as.
2:08 am
the media coverage in the west has been largely slanted against public opinion of course response to that kind of coverage of accent i meant is that russia is probably involved and if involved they're probably going to cover it up that's where the public sentiment is in the c.n.n. poll the american people got it right in terms of who's to blame here folks fifty one percent said russia isn't directly involved but only the stakes are high whoever shoulders the blame for this atrocity is going to be the target of global anger and right now it looks like it's russia's fault because. it's russia's fault . it's quite clearly the latest twist in this propaganda war the russians through their ambassador here in kuala lumpur presenting their version of events to the malaysian media there's also been attempts to discredit russian sources of information c.n.n. put out a breakdown of what it called russia's propaganda the first item on the list is this it says the russian take passengers were already dead when put aboard the m h
2:09 am
seventeen but when you follow the link on this page it has an article in russian which reviews all the apparently put on quote fake fur germans and conspiracy theories that are out there that's what the article says specifically about the theory that the bodies were dead before the crash it says literally then there is information which is simply impossible to believe c n n presents it and calls it the russian take it is not the russian take in the same breakdown right after this dead bodies theory c.n.n. puts a russian defense officials showing evidence that ukraine had the capability to shoot down the plane moscow is now saying ukraine did it showing evidence that it had the capability to do it contrary to what here is now say that claim is brushed off as propaganda information is now politically charged on all airwaves it seems many journalists have already handed down their verdict in washington i'm going to check on. the estimated eighty percent damning cries is the voice of the whole world's
2:10 am
rage investigative journalist big she says the press is trying to protect the interests of europe and the us this is typical of the western media every time america's or britain's or the european union's interests are at hand they want to see america things or america wants so you will see the international community wants america washington believes that they have the right to speak on behalf of the international community if they don't they certainly devolve to speak on behalf of argentina or brazil or my. xico or other countries throughout the world so definitely is just a way of carrying out their psychological warfare to believe that they are voicing the opinion of the vast majority of people of the world over when it is not the case they were merely repeating or seeing what is the belief or the interest of america of london or of the other nato countries for example. meanwhile we use

a flow of weapons if it meant and militants across the border as far as the measures taken by the unite the european union are concerned this is a logical consequence of the decision of the european council and the lack of progress we've seen on the russian side since then cross the pond the white house has long been pushing for the e.u. to take a harsher stance against russia and it welcomed its not just towards more punitive measures even pushing for a full arms embargo france's said it will honor its contract. provide russia with one aircraft carrier but could still back out of sending a second to moscow but washington also tried to take advantage of the situation differently destroyed the french and you are not in the district and i'm talking about the mist i don't think we're going to stop the self anyway the french elements in the this is final answer will be given in the talk in britain the home

2:22 am
f.b.i. and the u.s. department of justice of creating terrorists out of law abiding citizens the group study found out that the bureau sometimes went as far as funding potential terror acts encouraging people to commit them in many countries that would be considered entrapment but not in the u.s. report explains. amid america's war on terror hundreds of american muslims have been arrested prosecuted and imprisoned for attempting to carry out terrorist attacks but according to a report released by human rights watch most of the high profile terrorist plots that were foiled by the f.b.i. were actually manufactured and orchestrated by the government to talk more about this human rights watch report on dillon by one of the co-authors tarkus smile thank you very much for joining thanks so much you guys found that the government was actually creating terrorists out of law abiding citizens how so but we looked
2:23 am
at twenty seven cases that we thought would give us a good idea of what's been going on since september eleventh and the cases we looked at were made up of some sting operations as you say and we looked at other cases where overbroad material support laws were used to prosecute people for things that they said the f.b.i. was playing a major role instigating and often offering many of the tools that the individuals who were later arrested and convicted needed in order to be successful and pulling through with the plot that the f.b.i. accused them of europe for example would define this as entrapment how is the u.s. government allowed to get away with orchestrating crimes inducing people into committing them and then prosecuting them for committing those crimes why is that considered entrapment in the u.s. to prove entrapment the defense first needs to prove that the individual that the defendant was induced to commit the crime in the case. for example
2:24 am
a two thousand and four case out of new york city so rod said you know i could understand why a palestinian who had his home attacked or his family killed might feel the urge to do something and potentially even pull yourself up that was used as evidence of predisposition to commit a terrorist attacks here. what you see is a community that's being targeted for their very identity and that's something that should give us a lot of parts a lot of target smile thank you very much for your time actually stated on human rights watch also told us that prosecutors use the fear of terrorism to sway juries the informant might spend weeks or months developing a relationship with these people sometimes showing people inflammatory photos of violence perpetrated by americans and encouraging them to plan terrorist attacks and then the f.b.i. of course provides the means to commit the attacks frequently they provide weapons
2:25 am
they have provided money to allow people to travel to locations to plan a terrorist attack so in some cases we've documented the f.b.i. essentially manufacturing the entire part of the prosecution that can admit evidence totally unrelated to the defendant but about terrorism in general and that inflames the jury the jury is scared of terrorism what we're seeing is law enforcement targeting people at times based on idea. and speech that should be protected by freedom of expression was another victim of last week's metro train crash in moscow has died in hospital the death of the young woman brings the total number of those killed in the tragedy to twenty three more than one hundred is still in hospital on tuesday last week three carriages of a russian train derailed smashing into a tunnel wall while the cause of the crash is still being investigated prosecuted blaming it on a rail track malfunction for metro employees have been arrested in connection with a tragedy and its head has been. so more international news in brief now
